General Plan/Zoning Consistency Program

In implementation of the City’s new General Plan , the City is preparing a series of amendments to its Zoning Code and other portions of the Municipal Code.  The Zoning Consistency Program is intended to provide consistency between the Municipal Code and the General Plan.

Zoning is the regulation of land use and development standards (e.g., building setback and height, parking, landscaping, signage).  To accomplish this, the Zoning Code divides the City into a series of zones, which are illustrated on the Zoning Map.  The Municipal Code is the book of laws and regulations adopted by the City.  In accordance with State law it must be consistent with the City’s General Plan.

  Upcoming Open House

A public open house on the Zoning Map revisions has been scheduled for Thursday, October 24 at 6:00 pm in the City Council Chambers (8400 Laguna Palms Way).  Property owners are invited to attend.
